Making our roadways safer for schoolchildren is Cayman 27’s top story for 3 May.
Wednesday (4 May) is national walk or bike to school day in the United States, but here in Cayman, many parents feel our roads are too dangerous for their children to participate.
Advocates of walking or cycling to school suggest more sidewalks, bike lanes, and crosswalks are needed, especially around schools, to make cycling and walking safer, and to encourage physical activity in our youth.
Cayman Prep PE teacher Claire Hughes started “Paving the way Cayman” to advocate for more safe routes to school. She joined Cayman 27 anchor Tammi Sulliman to discuss the issue of safety for young cyclists and pedestrians.
